A vibrant hub for growing minds, full of fun and engaging activities for children, where we spark their imagination and inspire a love of learning.

The Squiggler OOSH programs, Art Classes and Holiday Care experiences are run by our team of Educators experienced in Creative Arts, Drama, Music, and Sport.
As all children are unique, we offer them a wide range of activities and experiences to choose from in a fun, caring and safe environment.
Our centre philosophy encourages community, creativity, and collaboration. This can be seen every day in the Squiggler kids’ eagerness to be involved, through the friendships they make and the smiles on their faces!

Message from the director

As the Founder and Director of Squiggler Academy, it is a real privilege to support children, busy families, and school communities from the ground up.

Squiggler Academy was founded to provide support to parents and inspire children in our care to learn – by providing them with engaging activities and experienced Educators with backgrounds in Creative Arts, Drama
and Sport.

It is our aim to provide each child that attends Squiggler Academy with an activity that inspires them, which is why our program is as diverse as they are; covering everything from Drama, Craft and Sports to Robotics, Maths, Strategy Games and more.

My experience, working as an integral part of the not for profit organisation One.Laptop.Org, has been invaluable in partnering with the community to bring them something truly unique. I have also started studying for a Diploma of School Age Education and Care so that Squiggler Academy can continue to be at the forefront of Out of
School Hours Care.

As a parent, of a primary school aged child, myself I understand the challenges faced by parents and carers to balance work, school and family life. We are here to support this busy and fun time in the life of your family and to take some of the stress out of it.

My vision is to keep building and growing Squiggler Academy so that we can bring it to more communities, that way we can all benefit from a place where children are not only cared for and had fun but are encouraged to Dream Big!
